defense cuts that are coming up this january. these are things he has mentioned before, so this speech seemed to be an opportunity to make that argument a little more forcefully and and a place like virginia where it is a major battleground this year. the obama campaign is responding with a tv ad of their own in virginia, focusing on governor romney's foreign trip abroad, saying this was a reckless tripped and using a lot of footage from that. less than a month away from election day, we have a turn back toward foreign policy. it is the mirror image of what happened in 2008 when foreign policy had the election but once the financial collapse happened, suddenly everything turned to the economic issues and now you're seeing the other way around. host: thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >> this is where mr. romney will give his speech this morning. this is the virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. you are looking at the hall of valor. now romney is set to give his foreign policy speech at of the debate on foreign policy october 26 in florida. we will have live coverage
, a total sham. and moreover, governor romney also proposes a $2 trillion defense increase. now, if you want to do that, you think there's a case for it, and some of the military people are wrong. they need it. then you at least ought to say how you're going to pay for it. >> howard? >> hey, joe? >> the fascinating thing about all this is the positioning. now, i actually disagree with joe on raising the entitlement age. i don't have a problem with raising the age on social security because i agree with you actuarily. raising the age on medicare is really a bad idea. it's the one thing that would make me not support simpson-bowles if i were in the congress because medicare is a health insurance program. it isn't about an entitlement. it's about figuring out how to get everybody health insurance. the one program we have that covers everybody that's universal is medicare. why would you want to raise the age on medicare? but i agree with you on social security and the other entitlements. we cannot continue to have this kind of level of entitlement spending if we're going to balance the budget. b
that defense contractors must send out notices to employees that will be laid off. they are getting nervous. if you are a dividend investor in looking at it going from 15 to 45% in were one with some probability, -- in january, you are worried about being in the market. if we go over the fiscal club, it would be irresponsible in the extreme. the entire issue with the fiscal cliff is to get from here to spring 2013 being goods to words in the economy and not causing a recession. that should be the goal. if you look at the pieces of the cliff, the payroll tax cut, the temporary holiday, i think there is pretty much a bipartisan consensus that will go away. i consider it inconceivable we will get rid of the new taxes between now and june were one. -- january 1. that places a real premium on avoiding the rest of the tax hikes and spending cuts. i think the sensible thing to do is to say to congress, and your strong this in case -- your strongest debate, please extend tax rates for one year, and would you get to the sequester, the $109 billion across-the- board spending cuts for defense and non-
enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. when our defense spending is arbitrarily and deeply qaeda. while i have a trade agenda to speak of and it is not one of partnership, but opacity. >> it garnered a headline in "usa today." romney's hope is not a strategy. susan glasser, how much of his speech was against president obama and what he stunned? and how much of slain at his own trajectory and agenda? >> mostly most was the challenger, this is a critique of the obama policy and that is a very common tax by challengers. there were some good lines. he talked hope is not a strategy. he's tried to emphasize his critique of obama as fighting from behind, which was sort of an unnamed administration official at the very end of a new yorker magazine piece last year and has become a sort of state of republican critiques of the president's foreign policy. that being said, there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. for example, romney has russia as an important geopolitical united states. much of the surprise of hi
into defense of the many ludicrous and inaccurate things he's said where biden has more experience and a very clear agenda staying boiled to the president. you know, there is a little bit of a wildcard. maybe not a huge one. but ryan is smart. but also very self-centered. so he could get really caught up. >> i wonder, is there an actual skill to being a vice president? we joke that the only thing touf do is stay alive, right? but in the sarah palin case, there was this sense that wait a minute, by putting her on the ticket, if she isn't adequate to be president, it makes me question john mccain's judgment. are they above the bar where there's no real quality difference? >> i think there's an open question about ryan. he can be glib and telegenic that comes across as competent where palin didn't have that skill. we can't say l about. j was the last time a vice president made -- palin in 2008 is a dramatic one. estimates that it was one, 1.5 points is what she cost john mccain for being on the ticket. which is huge. think back to dan quayle. i've never seen a more dramatic contrast between the
and were bound for the ministry of defense in syria. >> very important statement. >> syria for its part -- >> yes. >> has said that this is an act of piracy because, remember, this was a civilian airliner that was bound for damascus that was forced down in anchora by turkish fighter jets. this is yet another piece of the puzzle raising the level of tension a little bit more in that part of the world. >> do we know if putin -- what are putin's plans. >> we do know that he had a trip planned -- an official trip planned for turkey, but it was postponed to december 3rd. this is what we're hearing now. we don't know if it's related to this incident or not. >> all the latest news. thank you very much. appreciate it. it is being called the most sophisticated and successful doping program in cycling history. his teammates say that lance armstrong was at the center of it. ♪ ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. your soups are so awesomely delicious my husband and i can't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on
are proposing $5 trillion in tax cuts. you're proposing to increase defense spending by $2 trillion. >> neither of these numbers are accurate. >> biden himself acknowledges he will be ready to respond if ryan disputes his record. >> i just want to make sure that when i say these things, no, no, no, i don't have the position or that's not the governor's position. >> to fully prepare, biden had a strict daily ritual. afternoons where biden rehearsed answering moderator questions. dinner time at home with his wife and after dinner, biden returned to the hotel for the 90 minute mock debates took place. biden's team wants to make sure you don't see any of those gaffes he's so notorious for. >> there's nothing about joe biden that i think people in this state don't like about him and love about him. >> but it can be a hard line between speaking from the heart and moments like this one last week on the middle class. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> or in august, speaking to an audience that included many african-americans. >> he's goi
like i have to rush to the defense of people who look boyish. >> but you're not running for vice president. >> thank god. >> but if you were, that would be part of the case you had to make that you were ready. this is not the most important issue tonight, but it has been bugging me as give been doing all this prep is when before mitt romney picked paul ryan he was making the case on the campaign trail that nobody should be allowed to run for president of the united states. amend the u.s. constitution so you couldn't run unless you had significant private sector experience, except for paul ryan who he picked to be his vice presidential nominee. do you think that distance between ryan and romney, ed, is the most important thing? most important opening tonight for joe biden? >> well, in your opening you talked about how they're very much the same. washingtonites. but the way they got there is a lot different. ryan's path was one of privilege. joe biden's was one of true middle class. i think tonight's debate is as much about how liberals are going to feel when it's over with, as par
want to get a handle on the defense of the problem. periodically something will hit local or national press. there's an interesting story about a teacher in ohio. what she think is lost is the extent this problem is how often it happens and the harm that is truly felt by the students and their families. when they don't share the majority faith. so one of the reasons we focused on south carolina is we had a case they are in chesterfield county where there was a whole host of abuses among them. there was one day where the school invited some local ministers and the school's stated intent and purpose as many kids and if you go to school suspension. we represented a student and his family. when the father complains, you go by the principles he needs to get right with god. lucky for us, the christian rapper actually recorded it all and put it up on youtube, so the proof is not as difficult in that case as it often is. it is a springboard to look statewide. we look at these nationwide issues come over right now we have this focus there. that is an issue that needs to be addressed by as and
